My incredibly intelligent brother is owner of an app called Fuera.
As my new fix yourself mission I decided to incorporate running into my routine.
I’ve always been a weight lifting yoga kind of girl but needed a change. I’ve always hated running. And give up pretty easily.
But today I sucked it up. Put on my big girl running shoes and headed out to the desert for a trail run using Fuera.
What is Fuera?
In simple terms it’s a running app. But in reality it’s got some pretty awesome features and simple terms doesn’t do it justice.
Creating a running community for all stages of your running journey.
I’ll go ahead and categorize myself as an extreme beginner, pulls over to die about 5 times. Possibly dry heaves then moves on.
So if and when I’m ready to find others that have similar paces. I’ll be scouting Fuera first.
But it tracks your pace and distance with such ease and no annoying notifications during your run.
It allows you to create a run and invite your friends.
Fuera costs $0 to download. For the frugal such as myself.
It adds an accountability and a reward at least for me. Being able to see my pace and distance at the end gives me motivation for my next run.
You should download it and you should spread the word just saying. My little brothers biggest fan here.
When I was ankle deep in loose desert sand sucking wind hard I felt my body actually coming alive. Despite the feeling that my lungs were going to start bleeding at any given moment. I ran on. And walked some. I spent a solid 15 minutes dry heaving. I’m not a morning person and I’m not a runner naturally.
It’s been a long time since I’ve headed out into natures beauty and just ran.
The thing about running is all my struggles are temporarily gone.
With each step I felt a feeling of empowerment. Surrounded by the beauty of the sierra mountains and high desert I finally felt alive again.
The numb feeling that depression brings for me was momentarily gone.
Fuera kept me on track. Gave me motivation to keep running. I told myself I wouldn’t check my pace until I was finished.
I’m not a runner. I’ll have to train hard to become one. But I just love Fuera, the running community it brings and the accountability it gives me.
If you are looking for a user friendly running app I’d encourage you to download Fuera. Plan a run with some friends or even just hold yourself accountable to a new healthy lifestyle.
